On our way driving from the Hobart airport to Richmond we passed many vineyards and places that we could have stopped at, but we were headed for Richmond and wanted to keep going.
Our daughter’s surname is Poole and so we were interested in visiting Pooley wines.
Pooley wines have different red and white wines that you can try for the low price of only $5 a person.
Tehillah really enjoys different cheeses and so when she saw that they sold a cheese and fruit platter for only $15 we decided to purchase a cheese platter.
We were very impressed with the quantity of food on the platter for this reasonable price. There were two large wedges of 2 different cheeses, lots of crackers, dates, apricots, nuts and quince paste all included.
We were able to sit outside under a sheltered area that was built by convicts back in 1832. They also had 2 large upright gas outdoor heaters to keep us warm.
It was a lovely sunny afternoon and it was very relaxing sitting, enjoying the yummy food, and looking out across the fields and hills.
There are many vineyards and wine tasting sites through out Tasmania. Why not test some out and taste some local wines on your next trip to Tassie?
In our next blog post we will have a look inside The Wood Shop, which is located right next door to the Old Hobart Town Model Village in the main street of Richmond.
Until then, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy a Relaxing Family Holiday!
